Number Of Ingredients 13

8 ounces whole-wheat penne
2 cups 1/2-inch cauliflower florets
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
½ cup finely chopped onion
½ cup dry white wine
3 cups low-fat milk
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 cup shredded Gruyère, or Swiss cheese
3 cups shredded cooked chicken, or turkey (12 ounces; see Tip)
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, or scallion greens
